The Fondation Pierre Bergé – Yves Saint Laurent has devoted its 17th exhibition to Japanese theatre costumes, known as the Kabuki. The costumes from the Shôchiku Costume, accompanied by accessories, engravings, photographs and documentary footage, serve to illuminate a traditional dramatic art which emerged in Japan in the seventeenth century. The Fondation’s exhibition of Kabuki costumes is the first of its kind ever held in Paris.
